Join SVA cartooning instructor Tom Motley for another round of drawing challenges developed from his online courses Cartooning Basics, Figure Drawing for Cartoonists and Thinking in Ink. This time participants will play with the graphic elements of comics, such as cartoon lettering and motions, in addition to trying a high-contrast approach to ink. You’ll draw along with us and show off your doodles, followed by a Q&A at the end. Come draw, play and express yourself!


Supplies: pencils, pens, an eraser and paper.


Moderated by Tom Motley.
